Hi to everyone:

Is it me or after some releases of Calligra flow is still impossible to copy a drawing from Calligra Flow (select all and copy) and paste into a LibreOffice Document?

Despite the fact that Calligra Flow is almost 100% usable, the little fact is a simple task like this is still not possible....

Any help, or hints are welcomed!

unfortunately the format libreoffice uses for cut and paste is not public, and even if it were we would have to implement support for it (if not odf based). Fact of the matter is that it is not a simple little things at all.

That it somewhat works with text, is because text is also exchanged as plain text and html, in addition to the libreoffice closed format.

Thanks for the explanation.

Any way to make pressure to the Libreoffice team to release the format?

I don't think that "closed" is right word here. LibreOffice is free software with publicly available source code. I am not aware of any closed-source component in core of LO.

Perhaps format used internally by LO is non-standard and non-public, which means that anyone willing to implement it must dig through source code and "reverse-engineer" it. Perhaps this state dates as far back as StarOffice and no one has yet guts to change that.

I agree that rising issue with LO devs is good idea.
